To Ian, From Jenni: Portland Oregon Engagement Photography


Dear Ian –

While I am rarely at a loss for words, I struggle to articulate how excited I am to marry you.  We have both said that we know our life together is going to be amazing and so much fun and now we get to put it into action.  We make such an incredible team together, you are the perfect balance to me and I feel honored that you want me in your life forever.

When we first met, I was skeptical of meeting someone online.  But something about you drew me in even before I ever heard your voice.  Your eyes were kind and I could hear your sense of humor come through your typed words.  And everyday since we’ve met, you look at me with such sincerity and care, it makes me feel as though I am the only one in the room.  And while our first date was “interesting” to say the least, you had me laughing so hard my sides ached.  Those two traits kept me coming back for more….and more I will get!

So here is to a lifetime of raising our crazy pack of dogs, the never-ending list of home improvement projects, skiing, camping, our Sunday trips to the grocery store and planning for our next international adventure.  Whatever life holds for us, I want to do all of these things with you.  You are my best friend and I am so honored to have you in my life…

Love, Jen

Okay, we’re just going to start with a smokin’ hot one first.

‘You turn me right round baby right round, like a record baby, right round round round.’

A dainty, sweet moment 🙂

Jenni, I’m going to tell you one more time how much you rock those boots.

Fisheye love.

One of my all-time-f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e-s.

Ohhhh, classic shot of Ian.

That’s a keeper….

Here’s the second smokin’ hot one.  Get a room you two!  he he…

Pure bliss 🙂  Yum.

Love the vanishing lines here – this is classic urban chic.  You’re rockin’ it!

Thank you, to this particular graffiti artist who made my day. 🙂  Oh yeah, saved the best for last Jenni.


Fantastic photography and such beautiful pics of you two, love the style! Can’t wait for this weekend….much love to you both!

I’ve never seen engagement pictures like these before. You probably have already ordered the pictures so my comment doesn’t help with getting a free one, but I am very interested to know about what your first date was all about after Ian’s comments. We are very happy for
the both of you and want to know the date.

Love Camille

Your photographer caught unique and beautiful photos. You make
such a handsome couple.

What great photos, so natural and what a handsome couple.

Those photos are very unique and you make a beautiful couple.

Ian you seem like a very nice guy. That said, quoting Sheila (and Francis from Stripes, aka Killer), “if you break her heart, I’ll kill ya.”
Pictures are very, very cool. I’m impressed that someone was able to get you both to stand still long enough to create these images.

Great pictures you look very happy.

My favorite photo is Jenni rockin her boots. These photos are all fantastic.

I really liked the pictures…it’s a new concept to me to have engagement photos. I am so happy for my son and Jen!! Can’t wait for the wedding…that is, if I am still invited by the time October gets here.

Love your photos. It’s so cool to see how versatile Byron is. So different than ours, but I just love all of them. Who knew he would have shot two online couples the same weekend! I hope your wedding will be as memorable as ours will be. All the best Jenni & Ian.

Very cool, very urban, very hipster photos you two. I am so very happy for the both you and relieved Ian found someone as sardonic as himself! 😉 yeah, I’ve really been itching to use that word all day!
